Biomimicry in Architecture- A Mindful Imitation of Nature


  • Pooja Srinivsan, Madhumathi.A


The imitation of nature is a strategy to live and to push towards a sustainable future for mankind. This research analyzes the 9 principles of biomimicry and its adaptation to the existing human technologies to create a comfortable environment in a challenging situation. Situations such as pollution, traffic congestion, water scarcity, and climate change. Although we do not have the solution to overcome all of these problems, architects still can control the impact of some of them with the design. The process that deals with environmental sustainability and energy conservation, which involves architecture, is something that cannot be disrupted and that brings researchers and architects before the complexities of science and design where specific studies and trials must be conducted on materials and its application on the structure and design of buildings. The advancement of technology with the creation of new materials and construction methods has made it easier for architects to imitate nature more effectively. The primary goal of this research is to increase awareness among architects of the biomimetic strategies used in the built environment. The field of biomimetic research is progressively growing and extremely promising. Hypothetically, this report introduces in each case study an empirical method founded on "Bayesian networks" to check the immediate outcome of the biomimetic structure according to specific criteria. By providing a built environment that allows people to live and function more efficiently, we can transform it into a new and sustainable man-made environment.
